Emergency Services


Police Department

The Riverdale Munic­i­pal­ity is serviced by its own local police force and has been since Rivers was incorporated into the town of Rivers in 1913. This force is known for having one of the highest crime-solving rates in the province of Manitoba. The Town of Rivers Police Service is made up of three full-time police officers.

The rural area of Riverdale Municipality is serviced by two detachments of the R.C.M.P – the Blue Hills Detachment out of Souris and the Yellowhead Detachment out of Hamiota.

Fire Department

The Riverdale Munic­i­pal­ity is serviced by the Rivers-Daly Fire Department. 24 trained volunteers staff this Fire Department.

Ambulance Service

The Rivers & District ambulance serves Rivers and most of the rural area of Riverdale Municipality. The southeast portion of the Riverdale Municipality is served by Brandon Ambulance Service.

The Riverdale Munic­i­pal­ity has a volunteer-based ambulance service with one ambulance which was purchased in 1997; two Emergency Medical Technicians; seven Emergency Medical Responders, and six basic first aid trained attendants. These numbers will increase as more people are currently being trained.

911 Emergency Services

The Riverdale Munic­i­pal­ity began using the 911 Emergency Telephone Service in March of 1998. Now, the 911 system can be accessed from any home, business, cell phone or pay phone within the Riverdale Munic­i­pal­ity.
